Deep peace

Earlier today on Bellshill Salvation Army Band’s Facebook page I shared some devotions. I’d like to share those devotions with you tonight.

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.

Isaiah 26:3 (NIV)

When it feels like all is going well for us, we may read this verse as something we can fall back on when things aren’t going so well. However if remind ourselves that we only experience this peace or contentment because of our trust in God, this verse takes on new meaning, and can reassure us when dark clouds of doubt and depression surround us.

We are not promised lives free from trouble. It therefore is wonderful that even in the middle of the fiercest storm, or days of deepest despair, we can still experience inward peace – a deep calm and quiet peace – the deep peace of Christ.

As you listen to this beautiful arrangement of an Irish Blessing, ‘Deep Peace’, let the deep peace of Christ fill your heart and mind.

 Deep peace of the running wave to you
 Deep peace of the flowing air to you
 Deep peace of the quiet earth to you
 Deep peace of the shining stars to you
 Deep peace of the gentle night to you

 Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
 Deep peace of Christ
 Of Christ, Of Christ, the light of the world to you
 Deep peace of Christ to you
